Michael Snyder*****My new novel is finally out! It is entitled “The Beginning Of The End” and it is now available in both paperback format and Kindle format on It is a book about the future of America that is going to shake a lot of people up. I didn’t just write this book to entertain people (although hopefully you will find it extremely entertaining). My goal is for this book to be used as a tool that you can share with your family and friends to help them to wake up.


The paperback version is 442 pages, so it is very long. If you don’t want a big, heavy version of the book, you might want to try the Kindle version.

Fortunately, you don’t even need a Kindle to read the Kindle edition book. A free Amazon Cloud Reader can be found here:

I have started to use the Cloud Reader and I like it very much. Using the top menu, you can set the font as large as you would like (to make for easier reading) and you can bookmark the place where you left off.

In addition, there are a whole bunch of other free Kindle apps for smartphones, tablets and desktop computers that you can find here:

So no matter what kind of device you use to access the Internet, you will be able to read my novel online right on your computer. If you are not familiar with eBooks and you are having some problems, just email me at TheEconomicCollapseBlog @ and I will help you out with this.

Another great thing about the Kindle format is that it makes it very easy to give books as a gift. When you go to the Kindle version of my book on Amazon, you will notice that there is a big button on the right hand side that says “Give as a Gift”. All you need is the email address of the person that you want to give it to, and you can send them the Kindle version of the book.

That way you don’t have to order a paperback copy, wait for it to come in, pack it up, go to the post office, pay for shipping and wait for it to get to the person that you are giving it to.

One of my goals in writing this book is for it be used as a tool to wake people up. If you enjoy the book, I hope that you will consider sending it out as a gift to your family and friends. That would help support my work and would hopefully help wake them up at the same time.

Over the past few years, a lot of people have told me that I should write a book. But I didn’t just want to rehash the information on my websites. I wanted to do something truly original but that would also have a real impact.

Eventually, I decided to write a novel. Let’s face it – people love stories. Just think about some of the largest cultural phenomenons in recent years – Twilight, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, 50 Shades Of Gray, The Harbinger etc, etc.

People love to be entertained. So in this novel, I have tried to craft an extremely entertaining story, but I am also communicating a tremendous amount of truth at the same time.

Many people have asked me what I think America is going to look like in the years ahead. Well, in this novel I try to paint a picture of what is ahead for this country. It contains much of the material that I would put into a non-fiction book about the coming economic collapse, but the nuggets of truth are integrated throughout the story. Many in our entertainment-addicted society would never visit a website such as this or sit down and talk to you about the problems that are facing our country, but they will read a good novel.

And it is a really long book. As I mentioned, it is 442 pages long. I have spent much of the past year working on it. I knew that people were going to be spending their hard-earned money on it, so I wanted it to be some of my best work.

If you enjoy reading my articles, then I think that you are really going to enjoy this novel. And if you do find that you enjoy it, please help me spread the word about this book. Once again, I don’t just want to entertain people. I really do hope to wake some people up with this book.

So what is the novel about?

The following description of the book is from the back cover

The Beginning of the End is the first novel by Michael T. Snyder, the publisher of The Economic Collapse Blog. If you want to know what things in America are going to look like in a few years, you need to read this book. The Beginning of the End is a mystery/thriller set in the United States in the near future. It is a time of unprecedented economic collapse, deep political corruption, accelerating social decay, out of control rioting in the cities and great natural disasters. In the midst of all of this chaos, a former CIA agent, a respected financial reporter and a blogger that takes his prepping to extremes all find themselves dropped into the middle of an ancient conflict between two shadowy international organizations. The three of them are absolutely horrified to discover that one of those shadowy international organizations is planning to hit New York City with the largest terror attack in U.S. history. The goal is to throw the entire country into chaos, but who will get the blame? A series of incredibly shocking twists and turns ultimately culminates in a wild cross country chase that leads up to a surprising ending that most readers will not see coming.

A great storm is coming to America, and time is quickly running out. The Beginning of the End is a great book to give to anyone that is still not prepared for what is ahead. It is a wildly entertaining, fast-paced page-turner that is packed with an abundance of twists and turns that many readers will find difficult to put down, but it is also designed to communicate a tremendous amount of truth at the same time. This book is not just intended to entertain people – the explosive truths contained in this novel could literally change the world. If you have always felt a desire to be a part of something bigger than yourself, or if you are just a fan of great apocalyptic fiction, then you definitely should read The Beginning of the End. We are moving into the most unstable time in all of human history, and cataclysmic changes are coming. This is one book that will help you get prepared for what is ahead.

Michael T. Snyder*****

Hello!  Thank you for visiting The American Dream.  Without readers this site would not exist, so I definitely appreciate everyone that takes the time to stop by.

One of the most common questions I get asked is this: “Who are you?”

Well, I would rather let the issues take center stage, but I don’t mind telling you a little bit about myself.

My name is Michael and I am just a regular guy who is married to one of the most wonderful women in the world.  I have an undergraduate degree in Commerce from the University of Virginia and I have a law degree from the University of Florida law school.  I also have an LLM from the University of Florida law school.  I once worked for some of the largest law firms in Washington D.C., but now I mostly focus on trying to make a difference in the world.

I am the author of all of the articles on this site.  I put a lot of work into these articles, and it means a lot that so many people out there enjoy them.

I am a very strong conservative, and I do not make any apologies for that.

I am also a very strong Christian, and my wife and I believe that God is going to do great things with this generation.

I am also a writer, a speaker and an activist.  If you would ever like me to contribute to a book or speak at a conference please let me know.

Someone once told me that life is like a coin – you can spend it any way that you want, but you can only spend it once.  I believe that this is going to be one of the most dramatic eras in all of human history and I want my life to have meaning and purpose.

Almost everyone will find something in my articles that will deeply upset them.  That is okay.  I am a truthseeker.  I just call it like I see it.  If you disagree with me on some issues I will not be offended.  I hope that you will not be offended if I disagree with you on some issues.

Even though I write about a lot of heavy issues, one of the most important things to me is love.  If we want to make it through the times that are coming we have got to start learning how to love one another.

The world is becoming a very cold, cruel place.  It sure could use a lot more love.

The Most Important Thing

There are many people that come to this site that are curious about what I believe and about what I stand for. Well, I am a Bible-believing Christian. Unfortunately, most people do not know what Biblical Christianity is these days. For a detailed explanation of what I believe, please see my statement of faith.

There are large numbers of people that come to our sites from literally all over the globe. Some of you may not even know about the God of the Bible or that He sent his Son to die on the cross for your sins. The truth is that the God of the universe loves you very much and He wants to have a relationship with you.

Unfortunately, humanity has rebelled against God.  The Scriptures tell us that we all have violated God’s laws and that we all have sinned against Him.  We stand guilty before the judge of the universe.

God could not ignore our sins, but He still wanted to have a relationship with us.  So God sent His only Son to die on the cross to pay the price for the sins of all humanity.

If you will repent of your sins and invite Jesus Christ into your life right now, your sins will be forgiven and you will be given eternal life. For a much more detailed explanation of how to become a Christian, please see the following article that we put together on this topic….
